My name is Julie Carrier and my son Jeremy Carrier ran away on 02/06/2012 from New Paltz, NY. He is 15 years old. I found out thru facebook that he was going to Ocala Rainbow Gathering. I drove to Florida and spent 6 days at the Ocala Gathering. I never saw him but many people did. My son was at the gathering with a 16 yr old girl. I just want to make sure that my son is okay. Please Family help me get word to my son that I love him and do not care what has happened and it is never to late to call me, I will always be here. Pls pass this on.
Julie, I cannot post to you directly - the system wont allow it but I realize now who you are, in that you were looking for your son some time ago. I hope you and he have found each other. I am sorry that I have no idea how to find Tigger, I have not seen him in at least 15 years I'd guess. I have not personally been to a Gathering since 2001 and had planned to come Home in 2010 and again this year but failed in my attempts... my prayers are with you and your family,sistermine... blessings on you.
hey, of course I know Tigger... we shared mud n adventures year after year... he and Alec and Tammy and I and Jane and Tools and Greenfeather and Crunch and Deanne and Jimbo and the entire crew of the old, original CALM. sorry it took so long for Me to reply, Julie. I just this moment saw your message... I don't understand this network, how it really works, how it is supposed to work, how to make it work better... and having serious trouble with an internet connection at al anyway.. but I am sputtering along and missing my Family while my longtime brothers and sisters are going to their Home in the sky... do I know you Julie? do you see Tigger? do tell him I said hey.
re runaway teens calling home. this problem is far from new. in 69 I directed a substance abuse program in boulder that included services for runaways, we offered to call their parents for them if we could not encourage them to do so themselves. and we got a judge to work with us so the city police would not arrest runaways but bring them to us for real help. I think there are actually fewer runaways now than in the 60-70s but also I think there are few services. be nice if rainbow could BE the needed service. I hope you can get a Circle of parents and youngfolk together to figure out a way to make this happen!
Hey Mama, I have a 16yr old daughter that was missing for 4 mo. and I went everywhere looking for her. I did find her and she stayed home for about 6mo. but she is now gone again. The good thing is she is calling me know. I would go and meet all the street kids and tell them to call there mother and I would let them use me cell phone. It's really an epademic what is happening with the kids. Next time I talk to my daughter I will remind her to tell the kids she see's on the road to call there mothers. I think all the mothers and family should get together and talk about this issue. Call me anytime 541-274-9107~Myrna Rain Heiberger
My apology for being late for the meetup at Rippee. I found myself detained in Minnesota longer than was planned. I live three hours east of Springfield and would enjoy a meetup for coffee. I will be heading South shortly. Sometime next…"
